An amazing 30 reworkings of The Resting Bench tracks from artists based all over the globe, some are old Monkey favourites but a great deal of them are new to EMP.
From cool Hip Hop to all out sonic attack its an eclectic bag of fantastic remixes that show just how far you can re-mould without just taking the original track and sticking a Kick Drum under it.
The Resting Bench Remix Project has been supported by Awards For All & Cumbria County Council as part of Monkey Noises, our education programme
The original Resting Bench was a collaboration between poet Ann Wilson and Clutter for a mixed media exhibition which was held at The Nest in Barrow-in-Furness from May-July 2006
The Resting Bench album - which includes the soundscape, the original recordings of the poems and copies of the exhibition artwork is available here
All the original sound files are still available to download under creative commons licence. They are yours to remix, remould and generally have fun with.
They can be downloaded from here
so if you want to get involved get downloading and send your finished entry in high bitrate mp3 to - firstname.lastname@example.org and contribute to Volume 2
